RPI Beats Cornell On Murley's 3rd Period Goal

RPI traveled to Ithaca on Friday night and beat Cornell 2-1. This was a "must win" if the Engineers are to gain home ice for the first round of the ECAC Playoffs. The Times Union reports that the game was played before a sell out crowd of 3,836 at Lynah Rink. Tim Wilkin characterized the crowd as "loud and intimidating", which it always seems to be when RPI and Cornell hook up in Ithaca in a game with playoff implications.

In order for RPI to gain home ice they must beat Colgate tonight and Union must defeat Cornell. This is a tall order, because Union only has two wins and one tie on the road this season.

Cornell took the lead in the first period. New Jersey native Jim Henkel tied it for RPI in the second. Matt Murley scored the winner on a power play in the third. Murley had been in a slump for a while, but broke through when the team needed him last night.

As always the RPI-Colgate game will be carried in its entirety on WRPI. WRPI is streamed over the Internet in RealPlayer format.
